Natasha Chettiar is an associate lawyer with Nelligan O’Brien Payne and a member of the Family Law Group.

Natasha was inspired to pursue a career in law as a way to effect change for people who need it most. While studying law at the University of Ottawa, Natasha volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada, and she was awarded a public interest fellowship grant by the University to work as a legal advocate for prisoners navigating human rights and healthcare issues, as well as issues impacting their constitutional rights.

Natasha’s passion for helping naturally led her to family law. She values connecting with her clients, and strives to approach their legal issues with compassion and creativity. She prides herself on being a supportive and fierce advocate, a good communicator, and someone who genuinely listens.

Natasha also brings to the table a passion for the law. In law school, she was selected as a Dean’s Legal Research and Writing Fellow, and was employed by the University as a Constitutional Law teaching assistant, where she honed her ability to analyse, simplify, and break down challenging legal concepts.

Outside of the office, you can find Natasha hiking, camping, curling, or trying very hard to cook as well as her father.
